Default First four AMD FX processors detailed, Intel Core i7 the target

AMD will launch three series of FX; FX8000 with eight CPU cores, FX6000 with six CPU cores and FX4000 with four CPU cores. Before the launch in Q2 AMD is expected to present four new models where two will be in the FX8000 series, and one each of FX6000 and FX4000.

The four models will get plenty of cache and DDR3 support up to 1866 MHz. Other interesting specifications is power conumptions rated between 95 and 125 watt with AMD's new 32nm SOI technology. As expected we will see Black Edition models with unlocked multipliers and considering Intel's unlocked K models we should expect a large offensive by AMD with its Black Edition models.

The exact frequencies AMD will use hasn't been revealed yet. Early rumors spoke of frequencies even over 3.5 GHz, but only AMD knows for certain. We do know that the second generation Turbo Core technology will help the cores reach higher frequencies in single-threaded applications to maximize performance.
